If you are not familiar with the way modern websites work now a days basically a website is broken down into sub sections typically called modules. Then those modules are assigned to a something with an id signature. This is where the flaw comes into play if you can find a way to jumble up the id of your module, or someone elses, then you can gain access to their profile and access all of their messages, then edit anything on their profile, and just pray that your credit card information is secure. When i found this flaw i messaged match about it because i was one of the people effected by this.
What does match do? Did they thank me for finding this and notifying them? Instead of Match doing anything about it they just suggested that i reset my password, which would be fine if that module actually linked to my profile instead he now has all of my credit card information, he has the abilty to pose as me to other members and match does not do anything about this.
I have sense canceled my credit card and posted a fraud alert on it, but Match is not doing anything about this, and if you use this website you can become a victim like i did, i even submited physical evidence of how this is happening and match still wants to allow the loop hole to persist.
You can email their support which is really hard to find, but when it comes to companies that make it hard to contact support you should be very very cautious of companies like this. OR atleast use some sort of prepaid credit card that you preload only the amount you are willing to lose to this site.
The appealing profiles are usually fakes or no longer in use and the less appealing profiles are abundant some are hideous. Your findings might vary. Match is a waste of time and money in my view. Never mind the awful site interface that is far inferior to free-to-use competitors like OKCupid. Never mind the massive number of bot profiles, the search algorithm that's only slightly better than random. They are legitimate scam artists.
They automatically renewed my subscription after I went out of my way to turn that function off and charged me for four months!!!
Please, don't use Match. Almost any other dating site would be a better use of your time and money. They are jackals who prey on saps like me- don't be their next victim. However, I can't say I hate this site because I met the love of my life on it. Even in life, you always have to go through people to find the best ones. The only difference is you have to do that online. I think it is worth it, but try subscribing when there are deals! Using match was a no brainer. The people were grateful to see me and they worshiped me.
I like the service and would recommend it any time you need a date.
The only thing one can count on with this site is getting a list with pics of single people that fit your age requirements. If you are a man, it also seems likely that you will contacted by a very young East European woman attempting a scam. Fortunately they are not very clever. So just be realistic. Using the site is difficult as there are few directions. Also, at times they will ignore all of your preferences including your decision to remove a match from your list of possibilities. In the past, when I used Eharmony I had none of the problems I've experienced here.
In less than 2 months on the site I received 16 false profiles that I had to report. Users fraudently taking a profile that was not their own to lure you in. Most profiles were widowers looking for widows. Said they had been widowed for 5 or 7 years, their wife died of cancer or her and their son had been killed in a car accident in Germany. Descriptions of themselves changed regularly from what they posted and what they said in their messsges.
I am so sick of these scammers that I will NOT renew my subscription.
2883 Match.com Consumer Reviews and Complaints
It took all of the joy out of the process, only to learn that the person you thought you were getting to know was only there to take advantage of you. I have subscribed to match. Being aware that Match segments their subscribers more than other sites, I performed a test by changing my zip code to different local zip codes within a 3-mile radius and the females who viewed my profile and daily matches varied by zip code, therefore just putting your profile on match does not mean your profile is automatically accessible to everyone.
Match takes your money and delivers what you don't want. From my documentation, some days included 8 out of 10 Daily Matches with no photos. Some are obvious - age, race, body size 5 I had Scammers view, Like, Favorite, and email me.
Profiles of Scammers are fairly easy to identify, but Match. I had a pretty good month on match, a fair few chats going on and even managed a real date ive been told i was lucky to meet someone and get a date arranged so soon but guess I'm just irresistible lolz!!!!
Match review: A user-friendly dating site for people who actually want something serious
I also have an account with a company called wejustfit. I was a member for 2 years. Had 2 scammers never met anyone off Match. Last week I cancelled my subscription and then last night I looked at my bank account and I was charged for 90 days. I emailed and said I canceled my subscription but apparently I cancelled only part of it?
Even though I clicked on cancel subscription So I contacted them regarding it. And I was told I will not get a full refund. I am getting 1 month "free". I told them I dont want another month I want a full refund because my account shouldn't have been charged in the first place. They said they can't give me a full refund.

Had a woman use this site i paid good money to be on to do advertising for a company to gain revenue i reported her and was banned. I used match long ago almost married from it a Midwestern woman but after a 15 hr day showed up to my place and she had a man in her car asked you are off work early.
This site like all the rest are a joke go over seas for someone decent and get a prenup. I bought six months and got one message, I messaged her back and never got a response. I got another six months free with nothing happening. I was unable to get a refund but I dispute the transaction and got my money back that way. I said it was because they were not providing the service they claim to offer. If you can dispute with your bank just tell them you didn't authorize the transaction and the company refuses to refund you. This is a site that has only one purpose and that is to scam you out of your money.
Not only are there scammers as stated by Diane H. I'll share this one example to illustrate.

When you join with a credit card, they will inform you that you now have full access to their site and features. You can now send mail to the men and start meeting them. However, there is a catch that they do NOT mention on the sign up page. The catch is that you can send all the letters you want to the men, BUT, unless the men are also fully paid members, none of them are allowed to read your mail and reply to you.
What is the point of paying to use the service when the other side must also have a fully paid membership? If you have paid your membership fee then by all standards you are now entitled to not only write to the men but to expect them to reply back to you. There is an extra fee that you must pay so that non members can receive, read and reply to your mail. This is a SCAM on every level. Please save your money and avoid this site at all costs. I'm speaking from first hand experience.
Back in the s, strip clubs were pulling all sorts of over charge and fake charge scams and forcing people tp pay. Unfortunately there is NO enforcement of these laws at this time. Your best option is to dispute the entire charge with your credit card. They may not want to do this because they are seeing so much of it.
Also be sure to indicate that you are filling a consumer notice with the Federal Trade Commision they have online forms for this to keep a numbers count on how many people are affected by these sorts of things. If you have been a good card holder, you shouldnt have any issues except for 1: You will have a hard time getting your money back Terri. The first time I was with them years ago, I forgot the auto renewal and tried to get my money back and they fought me tooth and nail. This time I tried both Ourtime and Match and both experiences were not good though Ourtime was a bit better.
I agree with some of the answers here that Match baits you toward the end of your subscription with possible contacts, but since I cannot proof that I have to add that disclaimer. Everything you have run into with your experience I have had with mine. If you were charged in one lump sum, you can't.
If they are auto billing you every month, shut it off. If they took one lump sum, the best you can do is file a formal complaint with the BBB and any federal fraud protection agency you can dig up. Why would they refund you? To even get a response, you will have to have a local attorney draft a letter threatening to bring civil action that will cost more than the year they billed you for.
If you wanted to make a point, hire the attorney to file the civil suit. The suit would have to be for considerably more than they extorted. To win that is next to impossible because the court will require you justify the additional damages for which you are suing, They will, by law, have to respond. At which point they will issue a refund a couple hundred dollars , the court will consider it satisfied, and the attorney will bill you a couple of grand for their effort.
